Bake Yourself

I see you giving me that hateful look

I can hear the words in your mind as you watch me go through the store.

Being jealous causing you to show your ignorance.

Just because I don't bake myself to have this golden brown skin causes more rage within yourself.

"Lay off the tanning booth, girl. And save what little brain cells you have."

Just another day as Mexican-American Me.

For all those haters out there:


Author's Notes:
I live in a county that is like 99% white. I do get some bad encounters with people and this was one of them a few days ago. But on a positive side, I have a lot of friends that accept me for who I am no matter if I'm golden brown or not.

Great write! People can be so ignorant and hateful. I have the same problem except with my hair, I have the type of hair people pay good money to have done. It is streaked Brown, Blonde, and Red. They always ask who did your hair, I laugh and tell them God.
